Room of the Week

November 27, 2013

After our Scandinavian Christmas themed dining room last week we have moved to the living room this week. Our final Room of the Week for 2013 is ready and decorated for the Christmas festivities.

The choice of Christmas decorations is very personal, and you should create your own style for your home. I don’t like trends at this time of the year, if you like it and it makes you feel festive it must be right! Our room here has a very decorated mantelpiece which is loaded with decorations that are supplemented further by the reindeer and more candles.

Adding to your decorations each year means you will bring out special memories every Christmas. It is very nice to collect decorations if you are travelling at this time of year. Ever year I unpack decorations bought in the USA, Scandinavian and Germany and remember the trips I took where I bought them. Memories are very important at this time of year.

If you want to buy some decorations closer to home take a look at the collection from Next. They have a wide selection of decorations to suit many styles and the quality is very good. I really like these mirrored glass baubles with the crown detail on the top, a bargain for £14. If you want to add something more permanent the stag would make a great feature in any home.


However you choose to decorate remember it’s your home and your Christmas – so be as reserved or wild as you want and have a fantastic time!

This room was originally featured in the extensive galleries of House to Home. Take a look over at their website for room inspiration, and be sure to check back here every week to find which one of the rooms has been showcased.

    A beautiful room. Our family tradition is that each year we take the children to buy one new decoration each to add to the tree – its by no means a glamorous tree, but its fun and festive and designed by them. The room above is gorgeous, I love the golds and rustic tones.

      Fun and festive is the way to go, whatever works for you! I’m not a fan of a themed Christmas – just make it your own.
